Reaxys contains the most relevant reaction and substance data from journals and patent literature. Information on single- and multi-step reactions is deeply indexed and complemented by a synthesis planner to fulfill criteria applicable to a research chemist’s needs.

  • Reaxys contains experimental reaction and substance data extracted from trusted literature dating back to 1771, not available elsewhere
  • Reaxys includes a synthesis planner allowing researchers to identify and combine selected reaction steps to generate the most effective synthesis strategy.
  • It uses “chemistry as organizing principle”: clearly laid out substance or reaction profiles reducing time to get to the relevant results.
  • Experimental procedure texts from patent literature reduce the need to go to the original document
  • Intelligent filter and ranking tools allow researchers to find the “best” hits from this extensive source fast.
  • With Reaxys you can link directly to full-text documents (journals and patents) to enable further exploration of all the scientific literature
  • Multiple formats allow to export results, merge with other data or share data with colleagues (DOC, PDF, XLS, SD, RD, RIS, EndNote/Reference Manager).
  • Commercial availability flags have direct links to chemical directories: synthesize or buy, whichever is more efficient.
